Two in Thomas' Group
Deny That They Were Snubbed in Sweden By the Associated Press ROME, Nov. 17.—Two members of a Senate Appropriations Com mittee denied today that they had been snubbed by Sweden. The denials followed a com plaint by Senator Thomas, Demo crat, of Oklahoma, the commit tee’s chairman. Senator Thomas still insisted he had found no opportunity to talk with the Swedes. Senator Chaves, Democrat, of New Mexico, told a neifs confer ence “there seems to be some mis understanding somewhere regard ing the attitude of the people in reference to our trip. “Having been treated with cour tesy and respect everywhere and knowing all the Senators were so treated everywhere, I am sure that the purported report that a certain country was discourteous is not true.” Robertson Tells of Talks. Senator Robertson, Democrat, of Virginia said he had discussed trade, fiscal matters and military affairs with a number of outstand ing Swedish officials. “I came away from Sweden con vinced that Sweden loves its per sonal freedom as much as any one in Europe and will fight if neces sary to preserve it,” he said. He said he had been extended the “greeatest courtesy” in every country visited. ‘ Senator Thomas conceded that other members of his subcommit tee might not agree with him re garding the reception in Sweden. “As for me,” he said, “I simply refer you to the agenda prepared for us there.” He read the agenda, which list , ed a luncheon given by American Consul Hugh Cummings, jr.. a * meeting with American Ambassa dor Freeman Matthews, a news conference and a Swedish Foreign - Ministry reception, at which, he ' said, “no business was discussed with me.” He added he had asked no questions because he saw no one to talk to. Hits Cocktail Parties. He said he had met a number of persons who were never iden tified. He said the reception was “a sort of cocktail party, and cocktail parties are not the proper place to talk business, anyway.” Senator Thomas repeated that Sweden had not given aid in a war in 135 years, and added that instead of spending money for military purposes they were "using the money in other ways.” He commended Sweden's public housing, old age programs and public works projects, compared Stockholm to Seattle and de scribed it as “one of the finest cities in the world.” He praised receptions given the subcommittee in Norway and Greece, where the Kings there “answered all questions submitted to them.” Heart Association Starts New Job Therapy Program The Washington Heart Associ ation today announced a new occupational therapy program to help teach new skills to patients Whose activities are limited by heart ailments. Dr. J. Ross Veal, association president, said the program, to be carried out in the patients’ homes, . will be limited to those referred j ’ to the association by the Dis-, ‘ trict’s seven heart clinics. He announced appointment of; 'Mrs. Nancy K. Osserman, former occupational therapist at Bellevue* Hospital in New York, to head the | program. "Occupational therapy strives to show the patient what he can do and to find substitutes for the things he cannot do,” Dr. Veal said, "in order to make his daily life approximate faormal activity as nearly as possible. “Training patients to restrict their activities with the limitations of their illness is just as im portant a part of cardiac treat ment as medication.” Pope Assails Reds' Use of Force To Make 'Chattels' of People By tht Associated Press CASTEL GANDOLFO, Italy, Nov. 17.—Pope Plus XU told a group of American Senators today that fear of war will remain so long as a single member of the family of nations “uses sheer force to reduce its citizens to a condition of chattels." The Pontiff mentioned no coun try by name, but apparently he referred to the Communist gov ernments of Eastern Europe. The Pope addressed members of a United States Senate Armed Services Committee headed by Senator Thomas, Democrat of Ok lahoma, and including Senators Chavez, Democrat of New Mexico; Maybank, Democrat of South Carolina; Robertson, Democrat of Virginia; Stennis, Democrat of Mississippi; Thye, Republican of Minnesota, and McClellan, Demo of Arkansas. The Senators, their wives and their aides drove to the Pope's summer palace from Rome. Later the group, which ar rived yesterday from Athens, was to confer with Italian government leaders. They leave Saturday for ' Madrid. Protection by Law Urged. The Pope pleaded for protection ! by law of the world’s people. He | urged a wise law backed by a “reasonable force,” with the func tion to “protect and defend the rights given to man by God and just law, not to whittle them down and crush them.” It was the third time within two weeks that the Pope publicly referred to problems of protection of peoples through just laws. “We are pleased to note,” the pontiff said, “that the lawgiver and the soldier move in friendly companionship.” This, he said, is “as it should be,” since law, however wise, could “hardly hope to prevail unless it has the backing of a reasonable force.” He said an old Roman philosopher had said “that the very fear of war is worse than war itself.” No Tranquility in Force. Even within a nation, the Pope said, the only guarantee of tran quility is to be sought not in force, “but in the soul of a na tion—that is to say, in the inner life of its people.” Such inner life, he added, should be exerted “in the defense of the family, of the children, of the worker and his employer so that all. guided by Christian principles of justice and charity, may enjoy the blessed fruits of brotherly love.” The Pope said the Christian principles of justice and charity are indispensable to a world seek ing peace.
